Dixi Chicks

Hi there!! It's me, Charlotte from girl next door fashion, with our first proper post.
One of the best things about The Lovely Ones is that we have lots of items in circulation, so you can try something that is your style and pass up on things that aren't, but you can also give something a go that you wouldn't normally pick up and see how you can change it up. When I sent around this Dixi dress, I was excited to see how the girls would style something up in a different way to how I had. 
I bought this dress in Summer 2010 after seeing it in Tieka's blog. I love the pretty floral pattern and edgy lace sleeves. The first time I wore it I really played up the tough-girly 90s edge of the dress, with military boots and a leather vest, but I found myself stuck in a rut a bit with the dress. It seemed almost pre-styled and I didn't really know where to go with it next. Here's how I first styled it...


Sian and Laura were both interested in styling the dress, so I sent it out to each of them. Sian did two looks with the dress- one pretty cardigan outfit, playing up the girly florals of the dress, and another more autumnal look, with a mustard jumper layered over. Laura also went for a layered look, belted a tshirt over the dress, which I really loved. Both girls paired the dress with purple tights. When I received the dress back, I felt inspired to create another outfit, so I paired it with a red cardigan and red flats. Here are the other ways the dress has been worn...


Which outfit is your favourite?
